    Re: Impressions of the new Nikon D7500

    I tried to like this camera... I really did. I had it for 2 weeks and I went back and forth putting it back in the box and opening it up again to give it one more try... in the end I sent it back to Adorama along with an af-p DX lens that I wouldn't be able to use on a d7200. The 16-80 lens is phenomenal but not worth the asking price outside the kit.
    I liked the electronic shutter for mirror up functions. I liked the shutter delay option. I liked the auto af fine tune. What I didn't like was the grip and where my finger hit the F1 button ( which they did away with preview ) I didn't like the fact they took away the 2nd card slot and left the camera with no electric points on the bottom to mount a battery grip.I didn't like the strap mounts. Some people liked this option but I didn't like the iso button moved and not having the easy iso option. To turn off auto iso you now have to be a contortionist if you are from the back of the camera to push the iso button with your right hand along with trying to move the front dial. The tilt screen was ok but it looked a little flimsy to me when it was out... I'm not one to use video or live view anyway so that didn't bother me too much. The AF-P lenses for DX anyway need a menu to turn on or off the VR. I don't believe this camera is an upgrade to the D7200. I think if falls into an upgrade from the D3400 and D5500.Its a way for Nikon to want buyers to spend the extra money on the D500 instead. I'd rather spend on good glass. The end results are what we are after though... picture quality. For action, sports... this might be a great camera. For landscapes... the 20.9 mp sensor doesn't compare to the sony 24mp of the nikon d7200 If someone only wanted this for travel... then the d7500 along with the lightweight afp f4.5-5.6 lenses would be great. They claim better high ISO in this sensor... I still got a lot of noise without noise reduction software at 6400. It was fine where I normally shoot 100-3200. Someone at Nikon was on crack when they said it would do 51,200 and then even going up to 1,640,000. Not in the real world... sorry. I would recommend this camera to someone who just entered the photography world and didn't have any equipment. This is a camera they can spend time learning. I would not recommend this to someone who was looking to upgrade from a d7200

    Re: Impressions of the new Nikon D7500

    I am a D7500 owner. The LCD screen just broke on my brand new camera. I am pretty sad about it. As far as a review, I am sorry to report I am not impressed. The camera (when it was working) didnít respond as quickly as I expected, I kinda of wish that I went with the D7200 but was woooed by the new processor and tilting screen. It was an upgrade from the D90. I first had a D50. And before other film cameras. I am a hobist turned student. I have been taking photos for several decades but never professionally. For the last 6 months I have enjoyed the camera and it was definitely an upgrade from the D90 but I am so disappointed now that I canít really say much good. I can say this, I havenít missed an extra card slot. But again I am an armature, so that probably doesnít mean much coming from me. Anyway, thatís my take.

    Its still under warranty so you should be able to get that screen fixed. Was it the screen that broke or the swivel mounts? The arms on the swivel mount was the first thing I noticed about this camera that I didn't like.

    Welcome!

    I agree with MarkF, if it's still under warranty, send it to Nikon for repair.

    But I find Nikon have a magic phrase to refuse doing warranty work for free: "Impact damage". I've got a friend whose lens had some kind of bubble between elements and when he sent it, they claimed it was due to impact damage. So he had to buy a new lens... They are IMHO using this as an excuse to refuse to honor their warranty quite a bit too liberally. It seems that they'd rather sell than repair.

    This is true, I remember having that problem with Nikon over a pre-notified cleaning before warranty was expired. I'd still call Nikon and try though.

    Re: Impressions of the new Nikon D7500

    I love it. I just went from the D7100. 2nd card slot isn’t an issue for me. I used the 2nd on the D7100 as overflow or jpeg, never back up...and touching wood, I’ve never lost an sd card. Where I’ve taken exceptional pictures, I’ll swap out the card.
    I had the extra battery hand grip too. Never used it. Easy enough to change batteries when I had too. My hands arent large, and the bigger grip just made the D7100 cumbersome.
    a few buttons moved around. Frankly the extra functionality offered and the faster FPS for moving targets are great. I love the easy way the touch screen works too.
    also, though the sensor is a tad smaller than on the 7100, the quality of the pictures looks better. Maybe it’s the x5 processor or my imagination?
    I’ve had it a week and I’m so far anyways, convinced.

    Re: Impressions of the new Nikon D7500

    No, I haven't used the swivel. I did, however, just switch from Live View when this happened. It stopped giving me a preview, and instead was showing the menu after each shot. Then after a few minutes of taking pictures, and I mean minutes, not hours, the screen went black, would not preview or show the menu or play back the images, I got nothing. I changed batteries, changed lenses, reformatted my memory card...then, I let it rest over night and it seems to work fine again. But the fact that it did that in the first place is a big problem for me. I guess it is in the intermittent stage of breaking.

    Re: Impressions of the new Nikon D7500

    Hi Marilynn, I sent it to Nikon when this first happened. They could not replicate the problem. Got it back, then it kept happening. I was in the middle of taking a college level photography (for credit) class. So to say the least I was heartbroken. At that time when I sent it to Nikon, it was close to the end of my warranty period. I had bought a secondary warranty thru B&H photo. I sent my camera to them. This time I sent my lens that I was using, thinking it was some kind of problem, the two working together, I also sent my battery and charger and memory card. However, they also claimed they could not replicate the problem. However it keeps happening. Mind you, this happens intermittently so there are times it works great, and I think the problem magically diappeared. But then, I will be taking pictures, and for no reason I can figure out, the screen stops working, and goes black, then after a few more shots, the camera stops working at all. During those few shots it acts like it can not save the picture. Turning off and on does not help, changing memory cards or batteries or lenses does not help. The only thing that makes any difference at all is letting the camera rest for several days. At any rate most disappointing purchase EVER!
